Rounds of snow will become increasingly heavy heading into the weekend in Chicago, before temperatures plummet to dangerous levels again.
Come Friday, temperatures will fall about 10 degrees from Thursday, with the high forecast to be below the 20-degree mark.
Several inches of snow will fall in Chicago Friday into Saturday as a storm approaches. With 4 to 8 inches in the forecast, it will be enough to create slippery travel on the roads and possible flight delays and cancellations.
Saturday night, the temperature will drop into the single digits, making it dangerous for anyone to be outdoors for a prolonged period of time and keeping roads slick.
Super Bowl Sunday will be a frigid one in the city, as temperatures struggle to reach the lower teens. This will be followed up with temperatures below zero at night.
On Monday, the bitterly cold air will stick around with temperatures topping out in the lower teens once again.
If it is any consolation, winds with this outbreak of cold air will be much lighter, compared to outbreaks earlier in January. As a result, super low RealFeel® temperatures are not expected and blowing and drifting snow in the wake of the weekend storm should be minimal.
Another storm bears watching for the possibility of substantial snow Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.
